Linda....

Selfish is a good thing. If you are selfish now in trying to get the best doctor, the best settlement, and the best advice on how to do that - you are seeing to your health so that you may be here for your family, you're seeing to your future so that you aren't so stressed about the little stuff (like mortgages, electricity ;)) and you are arming yourself with knowledge to take on the "justice" system so that the way will be smoother for those who come after and so that your family can look up to you as the Strong, Capable, Loving, Kind and Intelligent woman that you are.

Be selfish, honey! It's the right thing to do! :)
